Like George Zimmerman, Darren Wilson Profits from Murder, Then Resigns from the Police Force

darrenwilsonWith more than a million dollars in the bank that he’s reportedly made since killing Michael Brown, Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson announced his resignation from the police force less than a week after a grand jury decided not to indict him.
The news of Wilson’s resignation came last night from his lawyer, Neil J. Bruntrager. His resignation letter was published in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Wilson, 28, was paid at least a half million dollars by ABC News for the exclusive interview with George Stephanopoulos, according to media reports.
In addition, Wilson raised more than $600,000 from the public with GoFundMe and Facebook campaigns set up soon after he killed Brown in August. The controversial public campaigns raised similar moral questions as the fundraising campaign that raised several hundred thousand dollars for George Zimmerman last year: People sending money to an individual in response to him killing a child. It is an unseemly picture, with these white men profiting from murdering Black teens. But the ugliness of the image apparently wasn’t enough to deter thousands of donors.
In his resignation letter published in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Wilson says he was motivated partly by his concern for his colleagues. He had the self-awareness to realize that he’ll likely never again be a police officer.
“I, Darren Wilson, hereby resign my commission as a police officer with the City of Ferguson effective immediately. I have been told that my continued employment may put the residents and police officers of the City of Ferguson at risk, which is a circumstance that I cannot allow. For obvious reasons, I wanted to wait until the grand jury made their decision before I officially made my decision to resign. It was my hope to continue in police work, but the safety of other police officers and the community are of paramount importance to me. It is my hope that my resignation will allow the community to heal. I would like to thank all of my supporters and fellow officers throughout this process.”
Published reports indicated that Wilson received at least half million dollars from ABC News for the exclusive rights to his first interview. Reports said that he also met with NBC’s Matt Lauer, CBS’ Scott Pelley and CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Don Lemon before he made the decision to go with Stephanopoulos,.
GoFundMe refused to succumb to public pressure to stop Wilson’s campaign. Critics went after the site for collecting “reward money for a lynching” with threats of boycott and more than 100,000 signatures on ColorOfChange.org calling on GoFundMe to remove the Wilson donation pages and return all profits. But the company claimed the pro-Wilson fundraising efforts did not violate its terms.

“The Darren Wilson GoFundMe pages lower the social and financial costs of killing Black men and boys,” Rashad Robinson, Executive Director of ColorOfChange.org, said to Black Enterprise. “They send the message that you will be supported in the aftermath of taking Black life. We’ve seen this before when Trayvon Martin was murdered.”

Robinson said GoFundMe should update its Terms and Conditions so that perpetrators of racially-motivated or sexual violence can never fundraise on the platform again. Wilson raised over $235,000 of its $300,000 goal at GoFundMe before the campaign was halted, while he raised more than $430,000 on Facebook.

    We vilify ISIS and the Taliban but we have seen the real evil ones. Show where in the world you can find a justice system so blatantly evil.

  3. Here is the "Guilty Blue" eyes. The people of the cave! The Quran does not lie.

  4. ISIS & the Taliban have nothing on MuriKKKIa!
    They've continue to twist the laws that supposedly are meant to protect all, after Trayvon Martin was murdered.
    the SCOTUS enacted laws, that should've prevented acts like this, to ever happen again!
    Yet, here we are!
    wilson (The female kkkop with the Broken Eye Socket) Prosecutor was able to manipulate the law &.
    render it impotent, as impotent as the murderer of Michael Brown!
    Yes MuriKKKa ISIS & Taliban use their laws to symbolically & effectively cut the throats of Blacks & Browns within our.
    “Post-Racist Society”.
    Murrickia, your sheets & hood are further bloodied as its legal system & racist bigots,
    continue to pays its ISIS & Taliban, Up front!

  5. Jay Contreras says:

    The more things change the more they stay the same…remember whites rallied around the murderers of Emmett Till too..of course, this cro magnon throwback can resign from the police force–he's RICH BIYATCH! I think we can learn a LOT more from WHY people felt compelled to donate to him. THERE is the far more interesting back story.

  6. Remember when OJ Simpson was released, and all those white people, stormed the streets, looting stores and setting cop cars on fire?

    Neither do I.

  7. Josh Rowland says:

    Dumb… this is all shit.. and it ain't gona change shit.. shut up and accept..

  8. Barry Hirsh says:

    The 'profited' by not being killed by worthless nigras.

  9. Most likely Wilson received donations when they saw the video PROOF that Brown was NOT the giant teddy bear his family made him out to be, referring to the strong arm robbery at the liquor store. The autopsies and forensic evidence of Brown's DNA inside the officer's car should be enough to tell you that this was all HYPE and VICTIMHOOD mentality rising its' ugly head to perpetuate the racist agenda of Communist Party USA. Wake up black America, you are being USED like tools for Obama's design to overthrow this country.

  10. Dale Furno says:

    If Brown wasn't a 285 lb (from coroners report) piece of shit, this wouldn't have ever happened.

  11. Vicki Edmonds says:

    WOW now M B Robb a Liquor store SMDH!!! It's so sad when people don't know what they are talking about & keep the lies Going…

  12. Chasidy Hale says:

    So how much for the Brown family???

  13. Jeannie Kennedy says:

    WRONG!! George got nothing! Trayvon's parents got a million dollars from the Townhome association for their thug son getting himself killed! Now THAT, was BS!! Wilson deserves every penny that was raised for him!

  14. Jeannie Kennedy says:

    Love his blue eyes!! Glad he's still alive and thug boy got what he deserved!!

  15. Jeannie Kennedy says:

    Love his blue eyes!! Glad he's still alive and thug boy got what he deserved!!

  16. Jeannie Kennedy says:

    That's right!!! How much are they making off their thug son's death! Absent in parenting, hands out in death!!

  17. Jeannie Kennedy says:

    Nice RACIST name you have here!!! Black Star! SMH!

  18. Chasidy Hale says:

    @ Jeannie Kennedy…and you know this how?

  19. Janay ToughCookie Davis says:

    Its more than a "Black Community" issue, the police beat and kill everyone these days. Yes, blacks are targets, but the police hate all of us.

  20. Patrick Hightower says:

    I hope it happens to one of your loved ones , so YOU can cry alone and have people celebrate and cheer as you are doing, but that's if the Lord don't take your breathe 1st! Sleep tight!

  21. Patrick Hightower says:

    No they didn't you lying ass!

  22. Patrick Hightower says:

    Chasidy, this bitch don't know jack, she pulling shit out of the ass

  23. Jeannie Kennedy says:

    And that was the total back in August.

  24. Jeannie Kennedy says:

    Anyone who acts like a criminal, robbing and trying to take a police officer's gun should be expecting to die!

  25. Christopher Robin says:

    Darren Wilson did not resign. He RETIRED with blood $$$.

  26. Chasidy Hale says:

    No, the part about him being a thug and absent parenting? Do you have his history or the family history.

  27. Jeannie Kennedy says:

    He was raised by his Grandmom and has a lengthy criminal record, juvene record includes Second degree murder charge.

  28. Patrick Hightower says:

    Do you say the same bullshit when white man shoots up a mall or a child blowing up a school???

  29. Patrick Hightower says:

    That was because Zimmerman had no right to act on behalf of law enforcement while on the premises of the townhouse, they didn't get ANY money as a result of racist ass supporters! Big difference!

  30. Patrick Hightower says:

    Which was???

  31. Patrick Hightower says:

    Jeannie kennedy, do you get off on stalking black people? I see your list of people you follow is full of black people, yet you hate black people….your a fucking creeper….as far as Auntie Fee and Tavis Hunter…..you might as well stop stalking them…

  32. I'm just wondering if there are any adults on here and if you've heard of a thing called evidence? If so, do you simple ignore these facts to continue your "hate whitey" campaign? You guys seriously need to grow up and start holding people accountable for their own actions! Brown attacked a police officer, dozens of black witnesses even stated this fact! You people making this a racist issue should be ashamed of yourselves…Grow up!!!

  33. Jeannie Kennedy says:

    It was a wrongful death suit. Meaning they got money because the thug son got himself killed.

  34. Jeannie Kennedy says:

    Yes sir! Anyone, no matter color, deserves to be shot dead if they're intending to or in the act of taking life!

  35. Jeannie Kennedy says:

    Patrick, why are you stalking me? I love Auntie Fee and Tavis! I like to see her new cooking videos as if it's any of your business! You'd be bitchin if I had no black fiends!

  36. Gregory Gammons says:

    So he gets a million bucks, bet he'd rather have his job back and have things like the way they were before he was attacked by Mr brown.

  37. Gregory Gammons says:

    Yes, unlike the Taliban and Isis who behead people who have different beliefs…….we are the true evil ones because there isnt enough evidence….or the evidence that is there contradicts what the media wants.

  38. Brian O. Waller says:

    Jeannine Huskey, reading your comments shows me one thing, you basically believed Wilson's statement, word for word. smh

  39. Mike Hauben says:

    Gregory Gammons Exactly.

  40. Mark Hagerman says:

    "Worthless"? I doubt that. It's entirely possible that both Martin and Brown could have grown up, straightened out, and become useful members of society. It was their bad luck that they each attacked an armed victim, and got themselves killed, before that could happen.

  41. Mark Hagerman says:

    I object to the word "murder" in this article's title. Neither Martin nor Brown were murdered; they were killed in acts of lawful self-defense.

  42. Jeannie is racist.

  43. Des Smith says:

    Jeannie Kennedy what are you? a homegrown terrorist? how does a 18 year recent High School Grad deserve to die? The guy that shot all those people in Arizona lived to tell about it. The kid wasn't armed. The Grand Jury transcripts, the prosecutor, and that idiot Officer Wilson all lied. The Feds will have their turn so he better enjoy his freedom.

  44. Des Smith says:

  45. Jeannie is a mindless moron who believes everything cops says. She's also racist. Don't pay any attention to her.

  46. Des Smith says:

    Evidence? The transcripts were a joke. Even your beloved Nancy Grace agrees the evidence is bogus. How does a person testify for 4 hours at their own indictment hearing? Never! Dozens of black witnesses didn't confirm chit. The main 9 witnesses whose story all collaborated what they saw were simply ignored. All those other witnesses weren't even there as confessed by the white woman who went on the airwaves saying she saw the attack. Turns out she's been convicted for fraud in the past and she changed her story. What happened to Wilson's broken eye socket? You really need to stop watching Fox News and CNN and do your own research. This was very much a racist incident. I can't see him harassing 2 white boys ultimately killing one of them with 6 shots from 35 feet away. This dumb cop over reacted..he will have his day in Federal Court soon. Get your head from under that rock you're living under. Stop killing our youth as simple as that. We will not be silenced!

  47. Des Smith says:

    You mean the video that Wilson knew NOTHING about when he attacked Brown? Brown's DNA was not found in the car or on Wilson because he took off his clothes and didn't even get examined. Stop believing everything you read and see from the mainstream media. The store owner has repeatedly said through his attorney that Brown DID NOT rob the store. Do your own research. This was very much so a racist incident by a cop that was recently fired from a disbanded police department for racial profiling. Google it..you'll find all the conflicting evidence there and not by watching Fox and CNN. Regardless that cop had no right killing that 18 year old who just graduated from High School the week before. News flash! Thugs don't graduate from high school. And it's been confirmed he's NEVER been convicted of a crime..google that too while you're looking. Stop killing our young men then try to demonize them by saying they were a criminal so they deserved to die. It's murderers and rapists still walking our streets and this cops feels threatened by an 18 year old with no weapon. Not to mention the cop lied about the kid's weight and size as well. Wilson is 6'4 – 280 lbs and Mike was 6'1 at 245lbs…but the media keeps ignoring this fact. The Feds will be getting that [email protected]! so he better enjoy his freedom.

  48. Patrick Hightower says:

    I know for a fact she would drop your ass if she knew your perspective on black folks! !! Not that it matters, but I've met her personally, I lived in L.A for 19 yrs!

  49. Patrick Hightower says:

    That's always going to be a white perspective when it comes to death of black people, NO surprise here!

  50. Joe Yeti says:

    Des Smith It is always easier when you can go by hearsay and and hysteria. Do not let the facts get in the way, instead listen to the press and the people on the street. Obviously you had access to all of the evidence before making your well thought decision right?

  51. Joe Yeti says:

    Des Smith It is always easier when you can go by hearsay and and hysteria. Do not let the facts get in the way, instead listen to the press and the people on the street. Obviously you had access to all of the evidence before making your well thought decision right?

  52. Des Smith I testified at my own Grand Jury hearing like every damn police officer does. You and so many are clueless about procedures! That is the problem here! More than a dozen black witnesses did most certainly testify on behalf of Officer Wilson and I personally know this for a fact! I don't get my information from Fox, I get mine from law enforcement agencies. As far as your whole, "this cop over reacted" statement, that is another problem. You people act as if someone trying to grab an officers gun during an attack is minor, you are clueless. Again, grow up!

  53. Des Smith says:

    Number Twentyfive I've worked for a government lea for the past 17 years and the only ones who get to testify at their own behalf were the cops. The Prosecutor DID NOT advocate for an indictment. Most of those witnesses were discredited. That prosecutor my that indictment about Brown and not the officer's actions. You're clueless if you haven't read the entire altered transcript. Regardless, my agency will have that head on platter.

  54. Des Smith I've done more than read the transcript, but I'm not going to go back and forth. Good luck with having his head on a platter, I know better. Bet money ya'll don't…

  55. Mike Hauben says:

    Des Smith The guy that shot all those people lived to tell about it because he was arrested, had a trial, etc. Brown didn't because he supposedly attacked the officer who would have been arresting him. Those two instances happened very differently from the get go, comparing them is a little silly.

  56. Lorey Too says:

    how on earth did Mr. Zimmerman or Mr. Wilson profit? I think you are confused at the very least – it was Mr. Martin's family who made a million bucks and now Mr. Brown's family will attempt the same. ugh

  58. Mike Hauben says:

    Des Smith Nobody said Wilson had a broken eye socket except a bad media source. They even put out a fake pic of him.

  59. Mike Hauben says:

    Des Smith Nobody said Wilson had a broken eye socket except a bad media source. They even put out a fake pic of him.

  60. Mike Hauben says:

    Patrick Hightower someone being a loved one doesn't mean they were right. And yes, I say the same stuff when a white person does stupid shit aslso like shooting up a mall. Again, loving someone is great but it doesnt mean they weren't in the wrong.

  61. Jeannie Kennedy says:

    Des, are you serious? "He took off his uniform" to submit as evidence! And the store clerk is the one who called the police for the robbery plus it was on video!

  62. Jeannie Kennedy says:

    Des, Wilson heard on car radio that there was a robbery, and a description of the suspects. No blood in the car? Do yourself a huge favor and do not comment on a subject you obviously know nothing about. Look up the case and read through all the evidence as the GJ has!

  63. Did you even read the evidence and if so your gonna compaire that to Isis and Taliban man your dumb.

  64. Mike Hauben says:

    Des Smith Thugs don't graduate from highscool? What a stupid fucking comment. So your rationale is that since he graduated highschool he cant do stupid things or break the law? You are on some kind of crack. Also, you need to actually read the FACTUAL evidence and case notes, not just some random shit you see on twitter. Shit, you're even talking about some random OTHER case where a cop was fired for racial profiling… you know that was not this case, right? lol. Thatd be like me just listing a bunch of random incidents of blacks committing crimes and being like "see its the same as Brown". You also keep saying this whole "unarmed thing". But if he DID grab the cops gun then he WOULD be armed. How do you not understand that?

  65. Mike Hauben says:

    Patrick Hightower just like every time a black person kills a white person and its completely ignored.

  66. Jeannie Kennedy says:

    Guess I'm a racist because I'm glad the police officer was not killed by a thug. I don't side with color. I side with the truth!

  67. Jeannie Kennedy says:

    Patrick, you mean my perspective on "thugs who try to kill cops)? I said nothing about Black people. You are the one making it a race issue! I'm not. I side with the truth, not color! And Jeffery, try to say something more intelligent than just calling me racist! I don't know how thug hating translates to racism in your mind! But you're not hurting me by calling me names. I know that's the unintelligent way to debate!

  68. Tony Carlino says:

    none his a thug

  69. Tony Carlino says:

    Chasidy Hale his gramother

  70. Gregory Gammons says:

    Nancy grace!!!??? Lol. And it sounds like u didn't read the transcripts eithe des smith. The media wants this to be a story to sell ad space!!!!

  71. Good. Hopefully this will encourage more Zimmermans and more Wilsons to go sprog-hunting.

  72. Chasidy Hale says:

    @ Tony, English please.

  73. You all need a better victim. Brown was a POS who robbed a store and attacked a cop. If he were white, he would have been, and should have been shot…shame on his shitty parents as well

  74. Damn straight. Have you ever heard of Michael Shawn Honyoust? Didn't think so. It's because he's white. He tried to rob a Sikh convenience store clerk at knifepoint a couple of years ago. Sikhs are VERY big on personal defense. The clerk, Pardeep Singh, pulled out a gun and ventilated Honyoust's head. The DA declined to prosecute Singh.

    But did you ever hear about it? No. Why not? Because Honyoust was white, and except for his tragically white-trash family, nobody said, "He was a good boy who didn't deserve this." The average white person hears the story of Michael Honyoust and says, "Good." No marching in the streets, no burning down our own neighborhoods. We LIKE IT when the bad guys get taken out.

  75. If you don't want people like him and Zimmerman to make money off of incidents like this, stop blowing these stories up. I blame half on the media for making these everyday stories a big deal. Half on the people for not doing their own research, and looting and rioting.

  76. Michael Koleoso says:

    What else can be expected from the almost humans?

  77. Troy Dawkins says:

    You are one ignorant whore. That's why hide behind a stupid cartoon. You are a slut and a coward. Take that racist billchit elsewhere. You are the true thug cunt monkey. You probably got a black kcid (read it backwards e'er racist cunt)in your as we speak. You throat baby. Continue to hide on the intermediate.

  78. Troy Dawkins says:

    Why do you have to be such a cunt ? You weren't there so shut your racist ass up, slut. Go choke a kcid (read it backwards racist whore). I hope you die slut. I'M. Not trolling… I really wish you die, right along with your dog selling kkk buddies.

  79. sorry but gofundme has no right to cancel any account.
    freedom of speech, people are allowed to raise money for whatever they wish to.

  80. Patrick Hightower says:

    Which is how often Mike??

  81. Patrick Hightower says:

    You know damn well YOU don't even believe that! But it's all good , this country is about to be taught a lesson about it treatment of minorities and non- whites in general….the whole world knows how FUCKED up things are here!

  82. Tony Carlino says:

    why is everyone making this out to be a white/black incident it was a young man who would not follow the laws or a direct command from an officer period, if he stopped as he was told and not tried to break more laws this would not have happened…. the law is the law and he was out breaking them continually when are people going to understand that if the officer wanted to kill him it would have taken 1 shot not 12 the officer tried to stop him many times with verbal warnings before he started to shoot and as it was stated many of the shots fired were to injure not kill…………everything that happens is not always a RACIAL thing so stop labeling everything as RACIST IT SEEMS TO ME THAT IS EVERYONES ESCAPE ROUTE NOT THAT SOMEONE JUST DOESN'T HAVE RESPECT FOR THE LAW NO MATTER WHAT THEIR RACE/RELIGION ECT IS BREAKING THE LAW IS BREAKING THE LAW END OF STORY.

  83. Mike Hauben says:

    Patrick Hightower All the time. Its become so accepted that media doesn't make a big deal about it.

  84. Mike Hauben says:

    Troy Dawkins lol yes shes KKK because she doesn't dismiss evidence found in a trial.

  85. James LeBeau says:

    I wish some some of you people (and I use that term loosely) would read up on your facts before you comment. I dont see how person can read the facts see the video and still think that brown and zimmmerman acted in self defense. The only conclusions that I can come up with is you are a true racist or your brain compacity is equivalent to that of a pea. Either way its people with your type of thinking and deduction that makes it so dangerous for young black men in america

  86. Byron Faison says:

    I got my own opinions about the case and can even see it as self defense from what I have heard. But what I find pretty sad is Number Twentyfive statement of calling us "you people." I can understand that type of statement from many other but as a cop (or ex cop whatever you are) that seems distasteful. But again there are all types of people in this world and even on police forces all I can do is stay on my guard when I encounter them.

  87. Princess R Russell says:

    Mike Hauben You are kidding right? First of all white people are mass killing themselves…84% of white people killed are killed by other white people…When Blacks kill white people they are more likely to get the death penalty than any other group.
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-checker/wp/2014/11/25/giulianis-claim-that-93-percent-of-blacks-are-killed-by-other-blacks/

    http://researchnews.osu.edu/archive/dthrow.htm

  88. Mike Hauben says:

    Princess R Russell Ummmm not even close. In 2013 blacks committed 5,375 murders. Whites committed 4,396. Whites are 63% of the population and blacks are 13%. The stats are STAGGERING for black crime and black murder.

  89. Mike Hauben says:

    Patrick Hightower Yea she follows some black people which means she hates them. Oh wait, no, it means the opposite lol.

  90. Mike Hauben says:

    Actually Wilson has made over 1 mil from interviews and donations.

  91. I'm a white man and I'm ashamed of all you ignorant white people saying this isn't a race crime. open your eyes! to take wilson's testimony as the gospel noble truth is laughable. as if he didn't have a motive to lie! now chokehold cop in staten island gets away with murder: another non-indictment of a white man killing a black man. and he was caught on tape! what's the justification going to be this time? self-defense? bullshit. he was overweight, would have died anyway? bullshit. he was a father and a husband – a living breathing human being minding his own goddamn business. don't you see the pattern folks? can't you muster up an ounce of empathy from your cold, self-satisfied hearts? or use your goddamn imagination for one second to picture what it feels like to be targeted, day after day, by state authority? what it feels like to have no leverage in a legal system which is ultimately designed to serve and protect the state above the people?

  92. accepting white privilege as a reality is the first step to reforming this situation. unfortunately a lot of people just can't see it.

  93. Mark Hagerman says:

    Patrick Hightower : On the other hand, if you wish to assert that the failure of a NYC grand jury to indict the cop who choked a man to death is a miscarriage of justice, I'll agree with you completely. THAT cop belongs in prison.

  94. A Imonone McCoy says:

    Jeannine just stfu you sound stupid. How do u know they were thugs?. Let me guess like you are. You knew them personally right!! I don't understand how people are brought up so ignorant.. Thug or not they are humans that were murdered and didn't have a weapon no where on them. So just cause u look or dress a certain way you deserve to be murdered. No!! How stupid can one be. Your parents really tought you a lot. What kind of barn were u raised in. So if we don't like the way you look or dress than that means what? They should murder you too! Wtf is wrong with you. Thow shall not kill. Do u follow you commandment? Oh no cause you are the devil. Get a life seriously

  95. Pamela Hyman says:

    des smith: some of these folks have ice running through their veins instead of blood. jeannie kennedy lacks humanity and certainly has no class.

  96. David Rogers says:

    He'll yeah! Make that money!

  97. Jason Enloe says:

    did you know that 93% of blacks that get murdered, are murdered by other blacks? If you want the violence to stop, maybe you should stop killing yourselves first. Also, the autopsy showed particles of Wilsons gun BARREL in Browns thumb that was shot. Did you also know that BARREL particles only show up in a body if they were shot at point blank range? So OBVIOUSLY Brown was trying to take Wilson's gun away from him at some point when the gun went off. I would have shot him as well if he was trying to take my gun away from me. Why would he want to take the officers firearm, except to turn it around on the officer??

    Jason Enloe did you know that 93% of ANY race is committed by their own race?

  100. Byron Faison I said "you people", on this post because I'm not going to say "us" you race baiting idiot. You are part of the problem in this country! Why don't you knock that big ass chip off of your shoulder and try to live your life without doing your damn best to find racism in every single aspect of your life! I find what you said distasteful and quite ignorant.

  101. Alex Louis says:

    You gave them too much credit. The perpetrators should also be taxed ( not a "comfortable" rate either by the IRS for the funds they received, since tjr crowd funding operator's terms are so loose; make the recipient pay their "fair share".

  102. Wayne Sims says:

    Des Smith Darren Wilson defended himself when Michael Brown attacked him. The witnesses who say otherwise are liars. If you will recall, the first version of the "Brown was a gentle giant" story asserted that Michael Brown was "running away with his hands in the air" when Wilson shot him. But then someone noticed that all the bullets, other than the one that hit on top of Brown's head, struck Brown on the FRONT of his body, and none of them hit him on the back. If you're looking for suspicious changes in a narrative, then the most conspicuous one is the alternation of the "gentle giant" story from "running away, hands in the air" to any later version that does not include that (false) detail.

    Wilson was previously attacked by Brown, while Wilson was still inside his police car. Brown hit Wilson through the window. When Wilson drew his gun to defend himself at that point, Brown grabbed it and tried to get it away from the police officer. Failing to get the gun, Brown started running away. Having a duty to arrest Brown for robbery and for assault on a police officer, Wilson got out of his car to give chase. Brown unexpectedly turned around and charged Wilson, attacking him for the second time, when Wilson shot Brown in self-defense.

    That's how the grand jury saw things. The grand jury, a group made of ordinary citizens like yourself, is the group whom you are trying to second-guess. You, who have less access to evidence and more access to rumor. You, who have sworn no oath to seek the truth and are free to play politics. Why should we imagine that you have something to tell us that the grand jury didn't know?
